Stan Ross RIP

Las Vegas Sahara RIP


From The Las Vegas Sun: 

"It was once the home of Jerry Lewis, Buddy Hackett, Johnny Carson and countless other comedy legends. It is where Louis Prima and Keely Smith turned lounge entertainment into an art form, and where Sonny & Cher packed the showroom at the height of their TV fame."

First the Stardust sign kicks it and now this. Oh well, no more $35 rooms on the strip, eh?

How is the Riviera still standing? I ask you.

Take out your Sonny & Cher Live Volume II album and contemplate our ongoing need for a time machine so we can all go back and hear overly loud Sonny & Cher concerts at the Sahara and then sue for hearing damage like that guy did back in the early 70s. Ah…good times.

No seriously. If I could go back in time I would risk deafness to see S&C live.




I loved the story that Buddy's son told about CHER swimming in the pool at the Sands w/o a swim cap and her telling him to go fuck himself! Then he told this to Buddy and he asked if the hotel was all booked....yes he replied. Buddy then told him he better just go fuck himself...classic CHER SMB.
